Thanks for opening up this website for First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas.  You are just a few clicks away from seeing our folks involved in the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ right here in this south central Texas town. We are proud of the way we incorporate our Food Pantry collections into our Sunday morning worship experiences. We are pleased with our volunteers who serve at the Second Chance Emporium, our local resale shop. We are a multi-generational congregation with resources to care for and to challenge both the youth and the seniors who make up our membership. We are a people who are faithful to God’s revealed Word in Jesus Christ, and we are a people who “have fun doing good things” for others.

        If you are not familiar with the Presbyterian Church, I do orientation classes on the history and doctrines of Presbyterianism. We are an inclusive, welcoming congregation and we have a place just for you. So c’mon … check us out; you will be glad you did!


Rev. Jerry Hurst, D.Min.
